In early 2017, Ben Taylor was contacted on Facebook by Joel from Monrovia, Liberia. Joel said that he needed financial assistance and that he was struggling to provide for his family. Ben didn't have much money, but sent him a low-level consumer camera and asked him to take pictures of the living conditions in Liberia. The result is the small photography book, By D Grace of God. Joel's story continues to inspire millions around the world. Proceeds from the sales on this site will help Joel and Ben provide further opportunities for those in need.
